Bmc

Bmc (The British Motor Corporation) was a UK vehicle company, formed by the merger of the Austin Motor Company and the Nuffield in 1952.

Bmc was the largest British car company at that time, with nearly 40% of British output, producing a big range of cars including Austin, Morris, Mg, Austin-Healey, Wolseley as well as commercial vehicles and agricultural tractors.

BMC's headquarters were at the Austin plant at Longbridge, near Birmingham and Austin was the dominant partner in the group mainly because of the chairman Lord Nuffield (William Morris). The use of Morris engine designs was abandoned after 3 years and all new car designs were coded ADO from "Austin Drawing Office".

The Longbridge plant had been modernised in 1951, so was pretty up-to-date, and compared very favourably with Nuffield's 16 different and usually old fashioned factories scattered over the English Midlands. Austin's management systems however, were not as good as Nuffield's and this particularly affected cost management.

The biggest selling car, the Mini, was famously analysed by Ford Motor Company who concluded that BMC must be losing £30 on every one sold. The result was that although volumes held up well throughout the BMC era, market share fell as did profitability, resulting eventually in the merger with Leyland Motor Corporation.

British Motor Corporation Austin and Morris vehicles were manufactured at BMC Turkey under licence during its early years. 1966 was the first year BMC started adding truck, light truck, tractor and engine production in its product line.
